On a personal note, 9-11 changed my life. I did not lose anyone physically, but it started a chain of events that resulted in the end of my marriage. Our income relied entirely on the airline industry. On September 10, my biggest worry was that my then infant daughter had to get her first shots the next day and I was scared for her. On September 12, it was that neither of us had a job... and would not for six months after that. I'm not going to go into the personal details about what happened because of that. Or what happened as a result of what happened as a result of that. And so on and so forth. People who know me now but didn't then often ask me why I married such a loser.
We took the 5:30 flight home and it worked out perfectly. I even had time to clean my apartment when I got home that evening.
*President Bush, October 11, 2001
(as a tree hugging, bleeding heart liberal, I hesitated to use a quote from Bush, but it was appropriate, what can I say)
